Used Guns
(and neat stuff :)
For Sale

March 5, 2015  

A pretty fancy 9mm CZ Tactical Sport Clarence just completed for a shooter- Talk to him, he loves building special stuff!

 

Armco's revised drop-in/visiting hours are working well!  Wednesday from 1:00 to 3:00, plus Saturday 9-12 and 1-3 gives us those times to visit, and talk.  It has turned out to be a highlight of my week.  As before if you're traveling from out of town we can make other arrangements  :)  We still take a break from answering the phone on Tuesdays and Thursdays and that has really upped productivity, too!   Thanks, guys!!  (and ladies:)

You may notice the line-up below changes constantly.  Sales have been brisk and a lot of guns don't even make it to this page.   If you have a special item you are looking for, let me know and I'll contact you as soon as something likely shows up.  Well over half of the guns I get have a home already picked out :)

Coming soon: Real nice original 25-20 Model 92 from 1917, and a lovely octagon barreled Henry 22, BLR in 308  On hold, George Mc, BBR (Forerunner to the A-Bolt) in 300WM, and an early Winchester that has the Indian look (Brass tacks, leather...) ...

 

Restricted Handguns:
    New Spartan V 9mm's now here!  These are by far the best deal in high quality 1911's in this popular caliber - I have one myself and love it!  $859 - trades?
     
   
   
   
    This is a real find! an immaculate AMT Hardballer 45 dating from the mid-'80's and completely original, box and all  :)  2 original mags, appears test fired only, and this one is wonderfully tight (that means use a good lube :).  Trigger pull is quite nice - these early ones were very well built. These are basically stainless Colt Gold Cups and excellent shooters $899 - TRADES?
    Another WW1 revolver that I really want for myself  :)  This is the Smith & Wesson  Hand Ejector MarkII Second Model in 455 Webley caliber.  Unaltered in any way, with a very shiny bore and as-new internals.  Shows very little shooting ...   I see Canadian crossed swords  :)   $890 - trades?
    This is a 1974 vintage Star Modelo Super in 9mm.  Spanish made and imported into South Africa in the '80's and subsequently here.  One magazine - ALMOST a 1911, these are very well built, with quite a few features other 1911's could use - loaded chamber indicator, external extractor, slot type barrel locking system like CZ, ambi slide release, and NO GRIP SAFETY :) as well as a  very nice trigger.  They shoot beautifully - this one is almost unfired and very snugly fitted - $749 - trades?
     
    Rimfire Handguns:
     
    The new 22 GSG Stainless Model is here (and black ones, too) - and as usual, tuned and smoothed here, without the magazine disconnect and with a lovely, crisp trigger pull.  One mag, case, interchangeable sights, manual, tools... These are a full scale 1911, not reduced in size like the Browning and Colt, are quite accurate  and very reliable (I have owned one for two years now).  They do like the hotter ammo for best accuracy and performance but seem to chug right along with anything you can feed them :)  $469 with a one year Armco warranty - trades?
     
     
    Prohibs:
     
    And this 4" Python is absolutely gorgeous - one-owner, unfired, original box and papers with the 1983 registration papers.  Has 2 pairs of Hogue exotic (Pao Ferro and Rosewood) grips and a rubber set (in case he ever decided to go shooting with it) as well as the mint factory ones, six HKS Speedloaders and the Safariland belt clips for them - $1590 - Trades? 
     
    Some of my own - no tax... all these are 12(6) Prohibs...
   
   
     MAB Modele R - a 32acp French pistol very close to the Model D that is the common civilian version, but built for military use, with an exposed hammer and lanyard ring.  Very few of these were made as the army went to 9mm shortly after,  and today it is much rarer than the D series..small crack in the right grip by the top screw, lovely bore and internals  Now $199 - no tax 
    This is a Star Model SI in .32 (7.65) and its holster, second magazine, and locked-breech (miniature 1911) action is a joy to shoot.  All-steel and very well made, not one of the potmetal pistols so common from post-war Europe...$349 - trades?  No tax  :)
     
     
    LONG GUNS: (and some quite short ones:)
    12 Gauge x 3" Winchester 1300 Defender that has been tricked out with a heat shield/peep sight -   Very lightly used - $449 - trades?
    A very nice Beretta CX4 Storm in 40.  This one is restricted and comes with a real nice Aimpoint clone sight, and two Beretta mags (the extra one cost $90), a sling...less than 500 rounds on this cool rifle...  $990 - trades?
   

One of my most favourite rifles ever!  A Husqvarna Crown Grade in 308 - nice bright bore, everything is smooth and tight as usual, and it certainly doesn't show its age (mid-seventies?).  These were also built for Weatherby and Smith & Wesson :)  The scope is a 6-18 Bushnell and it has had a thicker recoil pad added - $799 - trades?   

    And now this is a cool one!  A CSA 7.5" 858 folder in 7.62x39 (restricted only)  with lots of desirable additions:  An AR15 magazine adapter,  Dlask flash hider, Bushnell Red Dot on a BC Tactical mount (stock sight included), 6 AR 10 round pistol Mags, as well as 2 stock mags, tool kit and sling, even the original box (and flash hider - or should I say flash enhancer  :)  $990 - trades?
    This nice old Browning "Trombone" 22 is chambered for 22 Long but apparently shoots 22LR just fine - has a lovely bore, especially for a 1930's rifle.  Everything original, except for the varnish on the buttstock (easily removable :)  $790 - trades?
This lovely old Savage 99 in 300 Savage seems to be a 1950's rifle with the cartridge counter, Schnabel forend and Lyman peep sight.  Great bore -wonderful wood - $799 - trades?
Here's the nice Hungarian side-by-side 12 gauge I've been promising - tight action, shiny bores - what a grouse gun!  $399 Trades?
This stainless Tikka T3 Lite in 300 WM wears a custom muzzle brake with a screw-on cap for those times you're not wearing hearing protection  :)  Less than 50 rounds - $899 - trades?  Or $749 with only the screw-on collar  :)
This Remington Model 1100 in 12 Gauge (2 3/4") wears a Cutts Compensator so with the Gas-powered action as well should be very mild to shoot.  21" barrel - apparently doesn't like trap loads - needs field loads or higher  :)  Hmmm, I'd be ordering a stock barrel for it - under $300 from Cabelas - and go trap shooting.  These things retail over $1300 new...$449 - trades?
Have you seen these JR Carbines?  A 9mm AR15 look-alike that is NOT RESTRICTED! This one has 600 rounds through it (didn't take long) and looks new.  Uses Glock 17 mags - 10 rounders.  Manual included - Comes with one magazine - $799 - trades?  On hold till saturday  :)
Stevens Model 67 pump 12 gauge that is chambered in 2 3/4" and 3" Magnum and with a 30" full choke barrel.  Not new any more but solid and serviceable - AND a lot smoother than the new shotguns out there now :)  $199 - Trades?
Lee Enfield Jungle Carbine in nice original condition (except for a coat of some sort of shellac on the stock - easily removable, at least none got on the metal)  $699 - trades?
Another one that could pass for new - a gorgeous Ruger Number 1 in 270 Winchester from 1982, with the early red buttpad.  This is the open sighted version and is really short and handy.  Absolutely immaculate with an exceptional couple of pieces of wood and the rare ebony forend tip- $1199 - trades?  Gone  :)
Another cool shotgun!  This a cut-down and customized 12 Gauge Remington 870.  2 3/4" so it holds more shells - nice folder with ammo carrier, rails and heat shield, extended magazine - $399 - Trades welcome  :)  On  hold - TJ  :)
1940 BSA-Made Lee Enfield rifle with a wonderful bore.  All metal parts are excellent and complete - wood has been "customized" of course, but replacements are available...$249 - trades?
Now this is really lovely!  A Sako 85L Bavarian in 7mm Magnum with a breath-taking piece of wood and Sako's usual smooth action and flawless metal work.  The scope was a Zeiss Conquest HD5 in 2-10X42 (Now gone) with $180 worth of Sako Opti-lock bases and rings - Still on the rifle) - wow!   $1890 with bases and rings but without scope.  (If you miss out on this one, you can find one at Grouse River at $2139 plus rings and bases  :)  This one has been fired (4 rounds) but it's hard to tell...
Portuguese Mauser in original and very nice condition - factory redone to 8mm Mauser from the original 6X48  (at least we can get ammo  :)  All numbers match - $399 - Trades?
     
    OK, here's my pride and joy - my Savage-based custom 1000 yard rifle (works pretty darn well at shorter distances, too!) with  only 1850 rounds on it (In this caliber a rifle like this (it's always been loaded with the very cool-burning H1000 powder) will normally go over 3000 rounds before the barrel needs to be moved back or replaced)  a 27" stainless Krieger barrel, custom-fitted laminated stock, left hand oversize bolt handle (I shoot right handed but prefer to work the bolt left-handed off the bench like a lot of right-handers, keeping my grip intact), tactical rings and Swarovski 6-24 Habicht scope, wonderful trigger, Stony Point OAL gauge, Redding competition die set (over $300), lots of Lapua brass,  Sierra 142 grain Match kings, other assorted match bullets, everything but powder (H1000) and primers - and for local buyers, I have that as well... -  Now  $2100 (or $1200 for the rifle, $1100 for the scope which is as-new with original box and papers) - no Tax.  This rifle also works like a charm for left-handers, of course!
   
Here's one for the guy who has everything! A Swiss Vetterli in 41 Rimfire With AMMO!  9 rounds of old Peters ammo, plus a couple empties.  The ammo last sold in the US for $15 a round but is pretty unobtainable now.  Bore on this 1880's rifle is still pretty good and it certainly would be decent shooter.  Some obvious repair/modification to the wood, but that's only a challenge!  Now $350 - Trades?
And... Neat stuff!!

    Bond Arms Snake Slayer.  This 45 Colt/410 takes Derringers to a whole new level  :)  Barely fired, apparently the recoil is significant with the 3" Magnum 410 loads, pleasant with 45 Colt or regular 410 buckshot.  For local buyers there's a bunch of ammo too, the special Pistol 410 ammo...$699 - trades?  Sold, Paul  :)
    Another Webley WG, this one the Army Model and in .455/476 caliber (still shoots 455 Webley).  This one was purchased from Holland & Holland, shows some exterior wear, but has a pristine bore and innards, great trigger action and and lovely tight lock-up  :)  I should be able to de-register this one no problem...A chip off the grip, but I have new ones  :)  On hold, Josh  :)
